Ageing Poem by Jonathan Goldman a.k.a JGthepoet

Ageing



The Thought of ‘Growing Old' in Life
Is what we must all endure,
For some may live Healthy and Long,
And for others ~ we pray for a Cure.

When we are Young ~ we wish to Age ~
For Elders can do more, we see.
But as we reach our Prime, we know,
Our End ~ is not ‘an Eternity'.

We are told to ‘Number our Days',
To take Life ‘Slow' and not ‘Fast',
That we may enjoy our Life on this Earth.
Until it's the Time ~ ‘To Breathe our Last'.

We may be fortunate to live our Life,
Healthy and ‘Free from Pain',
But Others may endure Suffering and more,
Each day ~ and again ~ and again.

The ‘Fear of the Unknown' is with me each day,
It's not that I'm afraid of dying.
I wish to live longer and write more for you,
But without Pain ~ which leaves me ~ Crying.
